  • "Lovely quaint chalet with wrap around garden."

    Area is peaceful and tranquil Enjoyed going for walks on the heath next to the property, and exploring the new area. Chalet was equipped with everything we needed. Thoughtful host who provided extras such as cereal and orange juice.

  • "We have discussed the following with the owner who requested that we leave a list which we have done."

    The owner is aware that the property requires some TLC. The bathroom is VERY small except for the bath which is a good size. The mattress in the RHS bedroom (as you enter The Chalet), although comfortable, requires attention (either replacing or a proper mattress topper - not the sheet of foam which is currently in place). The lighting in the kitchen is very poor and one is constantly working in shadow. No oven gloves were available There is some chipped crockery that should be removed / replaced. A set of dinner plates would be an improvement on the poor assortment of dinner plates currently in place. The cooking equipment needs updating.(There is a huge amount of unnecessary cooking equipment but only one decent frying pan and two saucepans that have a lid). Nevertheless, it is a warm, comfortable and private property. There is a plentiful supply of hot water for relaxing baths, essential after long days walking the many local geocaching circuits. The wifi was excellent. The garden surrounding the property is lovely and although we did not use the outside space it was a pleasure to observe the birds and squirrels from the comfort of the sitting room. The owners are charming and although they live close they are unobtrusive. Would we stay here again? If we could be sure that the TLC had taken place and there were more geocaching circuits to complete in the surrounding area, yes [:)]

  • "Everything was very good with many extra touches to the property to make you feel at home."

    Owners live next door and were very friendly and helpful at all times. Top rate internet connection which helps to keep in touch with everyone back at home. Couldn't fault the facilities in any way and would return in future years if possible.

  • "The hosts were very friendly and helpful."

    The chalet was extremely dog friendly, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The internet was not working when we arrived but the hosts extended their own internet for our use.

  • "The cabin was very comfortable and the local pub The Wheatsheaf did some cracking fish & chips takeaway."

    They were delicious. There is nothing to do in Gamlingay with only 2 shops but we didn't want it for the shops. We were either geo-caching or meeting up with family members who lived close.
